As the ways in which our members seek out information evolve, your association is taking action to meet your expectations and deliver an enriched user experience.

With this in mind, we’re pleased to introduce some new features on, as we continue to build on this important member communication channel to deliver the essentials for agri-retailers.

Reaching Out to Producers

Sharing the story of agri-retailers with producers will be an important part of our communications strategy going forward, and the first piece of that puzzle was launched in January: Produce and Protect.

Features of the new Produce and Protect website is a content-rich web platform that will share the latest news and announcements from the agri-retail sector with Canadian producers. Features of the website will be used to gauge producer opinions and attitudes on issues affecting the agri-retail sector.

We are very excited about this new connection to Canadian producers.
